Mini Lovespoon Wedding Favors
In the old days in Wales, a young man would carve a fancy wooden spoon to give to the girl that he wanted to court. (The expression "to spoon" comes from this custom.) It was important to prove to the potential father-in-law that the young man was good at working with wood, because he would have to make all his family's furniture, dishes and eating utensils.
The giving of a small lovespoon to each of your guests as a wedding favor to thank them for coming, and to serve as a memory of the romantic custom of the lovespoon, has appeared in recent times, both in Wales and in North America.
Our mini lovespoons are made of wood by David Court in South Wales.
For larger lovespoons that can also be used as wedding favors, see the small spoons at the bottom of our main lovespoon page.
We stock the eight designs shown above, numbered ML1 to ML8 from left to right.
When ordering, please give your preferred design number(s) or ask for assorted.
Currently # ML5 and #ML8 are out of stock at the moment. We have quite a few
of the others.
Size: about 3 5/8" to 4" long, depending on the design.
Price: Spoon only, $2.50 each or $2 each for 25 or more.
Spoon plus accompanying folded color-printed tag (see below) with information on the lovespoon: $3.25 each, or $2.75 each for 25 or more.
This folded is about 2" square. Inside is a statement of the meaning of the lovespoon, and a place to write to/from names. On the back is a list of some common meanings for lovespoon symbols. We have only a few of these tags left.
A note: how many of these mini lovespoons we have at any given time can vary considerably. If you want to be sure to get them in time for your wedding, please order them a couple of months ahead. Otherwise, if time is short, we'll do our best for you - we can contact the maker and see whether your deadline can be met. **
